Fashion Week

Grand Visions at Oscar de la Renta

Part of me wishes that this evening’s Oscar de la Renta show were my last — it’s hard to imagine a more over-the-top, spectacular finale to Fashion Week than a parade of amazing ballgowns. The storied design house stuck to its guns for spring/summer 2013, unveiling a classic array of tailored suits with boxy jackets, lace at every turn, and princess gowns decked out in blooming embroidery. No one does grandiosity quite like Oscar de la Renta.

I didn’t have time to snap a picture of the gift bag, but you can see it at the attendees’ feet above. It contained a sample of Oscar de la Renta’s ‘Esprit d’Oscar’ Eau de Parfum, which I promptly wore out tonight.

Tomorrow’s another full day of shows! I’ll check back in soon!
